Sanders to launch campaign tour of historically black colleges and universities.

http://thehill.com/blogs/ballot-box/presidential-races/265457-sanders-launching-hbcu-tour

As the Democratic presidential race tightens in Iowa and New Hampshire, Sanders is turning to the states that follow, including South Carolina, where he trails former secretary of State Hillary Clinton among the significant voting bloc of African Americans.

Sanders will kick-off his “Feel the Bern” tour at South Carolina State University in conjunction with Benedict College in the early-voting state.


Bernie is asking African American voters for a second look and some real in-depth talk about the issues. His strategy seems to be getting to know people one at time and creating a political base. That's how he wins.

2. Yes it does. When you don't have millions to spend on staff, he's being extremely

 

intelligent on how he's rolling things out. Now after all the "blacks don't go for Bernie" probably because most don't know who he is, I think this idea is brilliant. He couldn't do it all at once as he started from scratch. But whatever he's doing is working.

3. I've watched many campaigns and I'm convinced Bernie and his people know what they are doing.

He's peaking at just the right time.

He decided to build up a political base by meeting people and selling them on his message face to face just like he's always done. You can't fake sincerity and Bernie has it.

4. That's my take, too. Right on schedule and gaining...Tortoise and the Hare.

 

Kids book authors teach a lot about life.

8. I think so, and I'm really looking forward to this particular series of speeches.

Obama had some huge crowds in 2008 but it was his address on race at the constitution center that won the election IMO. It's the important policy address when all eyes are focused on you that makes a president. Now it seems Bernie is getting his moment in spotlight.
